What is spring without chocolate bunnies,
baked ham and deviled eggs?

Here’s three unique recipes for this
traditional family favorite!



Truffled Deviled Eggs

*If you want a little more truffle flavor add a little more truffle oil. Proceed with caution, it is very easy to over truffle!

Deviled Eggs with AJ’s Walla Walla Onion Mustard with Horseradish

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs with Skillet Kitchen Bacon Spread

  • 6 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon pimentos, drained and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped Walla Walla Sweet Onion
  • Skillet Kitchen Bacon Jam for garnish

salt and pepper, to taste


1. Peel hard-boiled eggs and cut them in half, lengthwise. Remove yolks and put yolks in bowl. Set whites on plate and sit aside. Mash yolks with a fork.

2. Add mayonnaise and other ingredients to each bowl separately and stir to combine. Either spoon fillings into eggs or pipe with an icing bag and tip. Garnish with complementary garnishes. Chill in fridge until ready to serve.

Hard-Boiled Eggs:
1. Lay the eggs in the pan and add cold water, making sure it covers the eggs by about an inch. Set over high heat and bring just to the boil; remove from heat, cover the pan, and let sit exactly 17 minutes.

2. Transfer the eggs to the bowl of ice cubes and water. Chill for 2 minutes while bringing the cooking water to the boil again. (This 2 minute chilling shrinks the body of the egg from the shell.)

3. Transfer the eggs (6 at a time only) to the boiling water, bring to the
boil again, and let boil for 10 seconds – this expands the shell from the
egg. Remove eggs, and place back into the ice water.

*Chilling the eggs promptly after each step prevents that dark line from
forming, and if time allows, leave the eggs in the ice water after the last
step for 15 to 20 minutes. Chilled eggs are easier to peel, as well.

* The peeled eggs will keep perfectly in the refrigerator, submerged in water
in an uncovered container, for 2 to 3 days.
